Mel Riley
Psychotherapist in Private Practice
“I am self-employed and I suddenly lost one of my contracts due to funding cuts and felt much panic. I knew I had to do something but I didn’t really know what that something was. I called Doug for a free consultation and I have not only gained a business coach but a good friend and he has more than paid for himself and I would thoroughly encourage anyone who is struggling to invest in some support.”

Denise J Waite
The HR Dept - Wolverhampton
“Whilst I have more than 19 years’ experience in human resources, running my own business meant becoming a marketing and sales person, an accountant and gaining other skills alien to me. Doug genuinely cares and is also passionate that my business succeeds. At a very scary time, he gives me the confidence I need to believe in myself.”

Jane Coope
The HR Dept Vale of York
“As my business became established I recognised that a business coach would help me get the systems and approaches in place that I needed to make the next growth step. Doug came highly recommended and I am pleased to recommend him to others also. Doug is a good listener and asks perceptive questions. He has been very supportive and encouraging and has provided me with a greatly valued sounding board. I particularly appreciated Doug’s practical suggestions as well as his strategic insights. Thanks Doug!”

Roger Gough
RS Gough Solicitors & Co
“I am a solicitor in practice on my own, dealing in residential property sales and purchases, commercial property transactions and the buying and selling of small businesses. As with many businesses, large or small, the last 18 months have been difficult. As a result of 12 months guidance with Doug’s guidance, my day-to-day business practices have been put on an altogether different footing. Moreover the Momentum programme has provided a toolbox of techniques which give me confidence in my ability to be better able to deal with the challenges of the trading conditions.”

"I began working with ETC to try and increase my profits and to achieve some goals that has been in my head for over 15 years. Within the first 3 months of working with ETC I had got a grip on my finances of the business, had moved out of the garage at home and realised my dream of owning my own photography studio in the city centre."
